I have tried to include some of the most useful websites I have come across and made a note of what that website contains.  I hope these will help you find some information for your trip without the time-consuming effort of sorting through hundreds of useless websites like I have.  Take a look and see what links can help you out.  I plan to include many more as Georgia-Florida Fishing Report Grows.

This website does a great job of reporting on both inshore and offshore action in the Savannah, GA waters.

Lake Oconee, GA fishing reports-All of these will give you the scoop for fishing the lake.

Some other useful websites you might could use:

This is a great place to find fishing bargains from boats to fishing equipment and everything in between.

If saltwater is more to your liking, you can shop in cities near the coast all over Georgia and Florida.  Might find a bargain!

Another place I like to frequent is Bass Pro Shop in Macon, Georgia right off of I-75. This store is one of only 2 stores in the U.S.  that sells refurbished fishing equipment at bargain prices.  In the back of the store is the area for clearance/refurbished outdoor stuff.  I have purchased a lot of my current fishing equipment here.

The Inn at St. Thomas Square is the perfect place for you and 3 buddies to stay at Panama City Beach, FL.  Go to the Lodging page for Panama City Beach, FL
Boat Dock, boat ramp within 1.5 miles, low rates, close to all the PCB restaurants and activities.

Pinnacle Port is actually a set of 4 buildings located right on the Gulf of Mexico Beaches of Panama City Beach, FL.  It has its own fresh/salt/brackish water lake complete with boat ramp, boat dock, and all the other amenities that gated condo units have.  Definitely more pricey than St. Thomas Square, but it's also right on the beach.

This is the website for the Econolodge at Panama City, FL where we've stayed a few times while on a fishing trip only with the guys.

Charter Fishing and Guides:

Captain Jason Phillips-Phillips Brothers Charters
I have fished dozens of times with Captain Jason both inshore and offshore in my boat and his boats. He's a great guy and the most knowledgeable captain I know. He charters from St. Augustine down to Daytona, FL and beyond. If you are ever in the area and want to have a great time and catch some lunkers, call Jason or visit their website. His cell phone number is 386-307-7309 and tell him Coach Reef Donkey sent you.

Captain Joe Brandenburg-Tampa/Tampa Bay, FL

I have chartered very few boats over the past 10 years, so if you know of a great captain that we could publish here, just let us know and I'll add him to our list.
